    Ask yourself this.

    What would be happening right now if it was 8 black policemen who did the same thing to a handcuffed white man?

    1. I've only competed against other air gunners twice. ( I won both of 'em in springer class) I live waaaaay out in the boonies, a days drive or more just to get to a field target club. 

    2. Small game and pests, paintballs, pine cones, spinners, playing cards, green army men, paper targets, knock-downs, the list is endless with targets.

    3. All of my springers are small game or pest worthy.

    Hawke Vantage is not springer rated, under 12 ft/lbs recommended. Be wary of that BKL droop mount, you might not be able to use it, ask me how I know. My Beeman 97K is presently wearing BKL double strap rings for the 30mm MTC Genisis LR sitting on top.

    The TX200 .177 is next on my bucket list. I just sold a 34p, have a little extra $$. Anybody got a minty TX200 .177 layin' around gathering dust?  Maybe you went to the "dark side" and no longer habla spring piston? PM me.

    My Beeman 97K .22 has been professionally tuned. When I bought it from John in Pa, it had a Vortek SHO kit in it. Accurate, hard hitting, but too much cocking effort for long plinking sessions, didn't need that much power. Sent it off to Motorhead, he slowed it down to 12-13 ft/lbs and also fitted a Rowan adjustable butt pad. Place 3 AA 16gr. on the top turret and they don't budge while 1 holin' said pellet @ 25 meters. Great rifle out of the box, can be made stellar with a little work and knowledge.

    I shoot @ a members only, indoor 50 yard range. I'm retired, shoot +500 shots a week there in the winter bench rested. Anybody wanna come shoot for score @ my place?  Iron sights are a no go for me, but if allowed a scope and since it's a spring-piston class me and my Motorhead tuned LGVs are in!

    Makes me wonder what it would do with a top notch scope on it? What's the length of pull Michigander?

    I had a full tuned .22 I bought from Flying Dragon. It was a decent shooter, pester with the 4X12 I put on it. I gave it to a vet just returned from the middle east who was just to getting into air rifles. He still has it, still shooting it.

    I saw them do this in Omaha when it first came out. Stanley Clarke was otherworldly.

    I'm on a hot channel catfish bite right now. Clean/fillet/freeze. Make a few phone calls. Deliver a 10lb sack of catfish to those in need. Some went to a single Mom with a kid who waits tables at the local cafe (now closed) I'm an early AM regular at. I used to work with a knife for a living before I retired, therapy for me almost. My wife has been sewing for about 55 years, she's hell-on-wheels with a Singer…. she's been making masks. We have daughters who are RNs.

    17 year old dies in Los Angeles, California from coronavirus. He was TURNED AWAY FROM THE EMERGENCY ROOM BECAUSE HE HAD NO INSURANCE. 2 days later he's dead. This is the REAL WORLD for millions in America.

    Sandhill cranes and the Platte River in south central Nebraska. I can take you to a place tomorrow A.M. before sunrise. When they leave their roosts on the river sandbars there will be so many cranes flying directly over your head that you won't be able to hear the person talking next to you. Rain gear required, they are a big bird that leave a large "offering". Largest gathering of cranes anywhere in the world, right out my back door every March. Here, they are protected, no hunting.

    C19 is Fake News! Russian Interference! Democratic plot! 

    Don't listen to the worlds leading scientists on diseases.  

    Every 3 minutes someone from Italy dies from C19. Because they refused to listen to the scientists, and kept everything open, and put things off…. just our President Rush, er, Hannity, ummm, Ingram, ??

    We have a President who is in denial. We have a President who refuses to take responsibility. We have a President who acts on his gut hunches, refusing the advice of experts. Our VP is an extreme fundamentalist who DOES NOT believe in science, literally. Trump has put this ring kisser in charge? We're 2 months behind the curve on this vs. the rest of the world, because of Trump. Just 2 weeks ago Trump said it was just a cold, get a flu shot, it'll be gone come spring. Less than 2 weeks later, Trump declares a National Emergency. 

    What scares me more than anything is those among us who wrap themselves in Patriotism and point fingers at those of us who have decided to listen to what the world is saying, not Trump and Rush. Why is the CDC lying about testing? Why did the CDC remove the "clock" showing how many positive tests? Is it because the CDC realized it was a measure of their vast incompetence?

    Fine shooting indeed being seated. If it was a .177 I'd be tempted.
